This could be interesting somebody on the bike with not much to lose but alot to gain hopefull he can put in a great ride.
At the moment anything extra Ducati does to any of their bikes hopefully will yeild progress and Pirro missing out on lab bike testing wouldnt be beneficial for Ducatis efforts.

i just wonder whats really happened.... is it a loss of bottle? no offence meant, im not brave enough or good enough to race professionally...

but ama excellence to wsbk excellence to gp reasonable results to what looks like just giving up.. its almost like the fear. anyway, id like to see him back and having podiums but i cant see it

You see Lorenzo's attitude and then you see Spies'. I KNOW they're not the same injury but I think there's a huge difference in attitude too.

As soon as Spies found himself struggling to get into final qualifying he was looking for an excuse. I'm sure if Hayden or Dozi were winning races he'd be back by now.

That race is 3 weeks away and already spies is writing himself off?! I mean he finished 9th in Qatar like 3 months ago how bad can it still be?! Oh that's right he re injured it at cota.. I was expecting him to be back by Laguna but now I wouldn't be surprised if he misses the whole season
